The Friday after Thanksgiving is perfect to ride SunRail

This coming Friday (Nov. 23) offers a unique opportunity for Central Florida residents to experience SunRail.

The biggest complaint that most people have is they never have a chance to ride SunRail during the week because the train doesn’t pass near their jobs, and that SunRail does not operate on the weekends.

This Friday (Black Friday/Nov. 23) is special because many people have that day after Thanksgiving off from work. On Friday SunRail will be offering its regular daily schedule.

In the past, Black Friday ridership on SunRail has been huge! Encourage your friends and neighbors to ride this Friday, too. It’s lots of fun and a great way to explore Central Florida.

For those who are unfamiliar with SunRail and where it goes, here’s a quick primer:
·        SunRail trains run from DeBary in Volusia County to Poinciana in Osceola County.
·        The SunRail route is 61 miles long.
·        There are 16 stations on the SunRail corridor.
·        You must purchase your ticket from vending machines on the platform before you board the train and don’t forget to tap on and tap off.

Don’t just ride the train as though it’s the Hogwarts Express, get off and experience the destinations.

Two destinations we recommend are Historic Downtown Kissimmee and Historic Downtown Sanford.

The Florida Hospital SunRail station in Orlando is the gateway to Loch Haven Park -- home of several museums (such as the Orlando Science Center) and theaters.

Every time you ride, those ridership stats help move us closer to 7-day service – something we all want to see happen.

See you on The Rail!
